Dog park delayed


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader '
Dog owners in Fernahdina Beach
will have to wait a while before they can
bring their pets to the new Nassau
Humane Society Dog Park on Airport
Road. The opening of the 1.3-acre park,
originally scheduled for Monday, has
been delayed because additional elec-
trical work is needed before the city
can issue a certificate of occupancy.
According to dog park chairman
Dave Coyle, there was a problem with
electrical ground rods at the site of
the new park. Florida Public Utilities
said it could not run wires longer than
100 feet, so another connection had to
be created. As of Monday, FPU had
not installed an electrical box at the
facility.
Coyle said he wasn't certain when
the park would be ready to open, but
told City Manager Michael Czymbor
that it would probably be the middle of
December.
The fenced-in park includes a
"bone"-shaped pool for dogs, a separate
area for smaller dogs, benches for pet
owners and dog-washing stations. A
new building will house offices and
staff and will also be used for board
meetings. Snacks and vending
machines will be available for non-
canine members.
The park will be staffed by one full-
time Nassau Humane Society employ-
S ee, plus several board members and
volunteers. Member fees will go
toward running the park, according
to Nassau Humane Society President
Janet Kourie.


Additional electrical work
is needed before the city
can issue a certificate of
occupancy.

Kourie said she hoped the park
would be a positive addition to the
community andits animals, and that it
would bring awareness about the need
for adoption, spaying and neutering of
pets.
A dog park lease agreement with
the Nassau Humane Society was
approved by citycommissioners in
November 2006. According to Kourie,
the park was entirely funded by an
anonymous donor. She estimated the
cost .to be between $150,000 and
$180,0000.
The Nassau Humane Society Dog
Park will hold open houses Dec. 7, 14
and 21 from 1-4 p.m. so that dog own-
ers can tour the park and discuss the
various membership options. (Dogs
must be members to enter the.park.)
The first 200 members will get a
grand opening fee of $180 per year
plus $50 per additional dog or $360 for
two years paid in advance and $50 per
additional dog. Regular annual mem-
bership fee is $275 plus $50 per addi-
tional dog and monthly membership is
$30 plus $10 per additional dog. Daily
fee is $10 plus $5 per additional dog.
There is a one-time charge of $10 for
a key fob.

A "bone"-shaped pool for dogs has been installed in a new dog park
that is soon to open at 671 Airport Road.


Tough times for workers


HEATHER A. PERRY
News Leader
"Although we are not the'unemployment office,' we are
the 'employment office' and I am blissed to have staff
that has knowledge in the unemployment field,"
WorkSource Director Verna Bennett says.
That's a good thing because traffic in her office has dou-
bled it the past month.
"'We are seeing a wide variety of customers that vary
from construction, sales, banking, production workers
and management positions," Benneett said.
Employment seekers are saying they cannot find work,
they're losing their homes and the only light they can see
at the end ofthe tunnel is a freight train, said Benneft.
Traffic at the Yulee WorkSource office has doubled
and she predicts it will get even busier with the recent
approval of 13 additional weeks of unemployment benefits.
Attendance at a Priority Re-employment Planning and
Re-employment services class on Mondays for people
who have recently been laid off has also doubled.
"This class is generated by unemployment claims filed
in Tallahassee," said Bennett. Theoclass will be extended
into two days in order to accommodate the increase in cus-
tomers.
"Our weekly staff meetings consist of reiterating the use

of soft skills when handling the volume of unemployed cus-
tomers," said Bennett "People just want someone to vent
to and to listen to them."
Bennett said the high volume of calls going intothe
unemployment hubs is astronomical and trying to get a real
person on the phone is almost impossible.
"That's why they physically come into our center. They
want someone to talk to and help them," Bennett said.
"Although we are one of the smallest centers in our region,
Ihave an awesome staff thatreally goes above and beyond
to give outstanding customer service. During these hard
times and the holidays approaching, I believe it's all about
delivering the best customer service possible."
The WorkSource office is located at 96042 Lofton

Paper mills modernize

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Democratic U'S. Sen. Bill Nelson
visited Fernandina Beach on Friday '. ..
'to tour Rayonier's Fernandina mill.
Nelson said he wanted to see the "
mill because of North Florida's his-
tory of paper 'production and
Rayonier's innovations in recycling
its waste products into fuel for its
machines.
"I just wanted to understand what'
it's like. I've been to paper mills
before, but not for a long time,"
Nelson said. "... I particularly want-
ed, to see this one because of the
unique products that they make."
Instead of paper, Rayonier produces
cellulose, a wood-derived product:
that is used in everything from tires'
to toothpaste.
"This is just amazing. You'd
never know that all this is going on
in Fernandina," Nelson said. He
added that paper mills like Rayonier
and Smurfit-Stone were once part of
the cultural geography of the area. RYAN SMITH/NEWS-LEADER

Coping strategies for financial stress

responsibility can add
up to a lot of stress,
especially when fami-
lies are being
Squeezed financially.
In addition, many
of the traditional
......-. . household response:
abilities end up falling on the shoulders of
women. "As much as things have
changed over the years, women still tend
to do more of the household work,"
Smith said, referring to cooking, clean-
ing and laundry. 'Taken together, these
things often lead to more stress in
women, because they just have more
things to be stressed about."
That's not to say that men aren't
stressed out. Seventy-five percent of'
male respondents to the APA survey
expressed fear about the economy, com-
pared to 84 percent of women.
SSince everyone reacts differently to
stress, a key to maintaining good health
during distressing times is to know your
own warning signs of the physical symp-
toms that indicate when your brain and
body are experiencing unusual or exces-
sive pressure.
Women re more likely to report
unhealthy behaviors, including eating
poorly and excessive shopping and nap-
ping as a response to stress. They are
also more likely than men to report phys-

ical symptoms of stress; including
headaches, exhaustion and depression.
For tips on recognizing and coping
with stress, consult the APA's online
Help Center: www.apahelpcenter.org.
Despite the tumultuous times, there
are measures you can take to safeguard
your health and well-being. "One of
things we often do is abandon our good
coping strategies," Smith said. "The first
and easiest coping mechanism is to keep
up your good habits." That means contin-
ue going to your aerobics class, eating
dinner with your family and participating
in social events like a book club. Take
enough time out of each day to focus on
yourself and your own well-being.
If possible, do not cut back on preven-
tive and basic health care services.
Saving money on health expenditures
may seem like a good idea in the short
run, but it can lead to serious health
problems and enormous bills, which
make financial matters worse.
To make your health care dollars go
further, talk to your primary care physi-
cian about all of your health needs and
concerns. If he or she can manage multi-

Florida economist sees



'deep, long recession'


University of Central Florida
ORLANDO - Preliminary
sales figures from Black Friday
offer no more than "false
hopes," says a University of
Central Florida economist.
It's going to take more than
minimal gains in retail spend-
ing to pull us out of "the deep-
est and longest recession since
the 1980s," said Sean Snaith,
the director of UCF's Institute
for Economic Competitiveness.
"Retailers are facing anoth-
er challenging holiday season
as weary consumers burdened
by trillions of dollars of lost
stock market wealth and
depleted home equity will cut
back purchases dramatically,"
Snaith adds.
Economists at the National
Bureau of Economic Research
said Monday that the U.S.
economy officially entered a
recession in December 2007.
And retailers this week are
expected to report their worst
November sales on record
after October's sales were the
worst in at least 39 years.
In his quarterly national
forecast released today, Snaith
further blames clogs in the
economy's "credit arteries" on
aftershocks from the mortgage
meltdown and a dramatic
downturn in GDP growth. No
matter how low the Federal
Reserve cuts interest rates, it
will not relieve the "the spread
of sclerosis that is slowly affect-
ing virtually all of the other
credit arteries in the econo-
my," Snaith says.
"It will be 2011 before this
event has passed entirely when
the credit channels are com-
pletely unblocked and the U.S.

He was also impressed by
the plant's efficiency. In recent
years, Rayonier has radically
reduced its groundwater usage
and ammonia discharge. With
the recent construction of a
biomass boiler that burns
waste to power the machines,
the company also has dramat-
ically decreased its consump-
tion of fuel oil and electricity.
S Nelson said Rayonier's self-
sustaining business model was
a good blueprint for other com-
panies to follow. "It's what
we've got to do for greater
energy efficiency, as well as
environmental awareness," he
said.
Nelson said he was also
intrigued by the possibility of
turning cellulose waste into
ethanol - a process that may
be economically feasible in the

Economic roundtable here
Newly elected Republican State Rep. Janet Adkins will
hold an economic roundtable discussion at 9 a.m. Tuesday
at the Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber
of Commerce.
Adkins will host a West Side roundtable at 11:30 a.m.
Dec. 12 at the Meeting Place in Hilliard.
Adkins and county business leaders will discuss issues
atecting the business climate. Information from these dis-
cussions will assist in pinpointing the needs of Nassau
County, and establish a basis for creating solutions tor
small businesses locally, Adkins said in a press release.
"I am concerned for the small business in Nassau
County and the effect the current economic situation is hav-
ing on them," she said. "Improving the confidence of our
small business owners must be our top pnority. It will be
small businesses that get Florida's economy back on the

economy beats powerfully
once again," he added.
In the wake of a new presi-
dential administration, Snaith
also says an even bigger stim-
ulus package, with tax rebates
and incentives for infrastruc-
ture building/repair, is neces-
sary to shorten the recession
and lessen the severity during
the final months of the econo-
my's contraction.
How the U.S. will pull itself
out of a growing, and inevit-
able, trillion-dollar-plus deficit
is anybody's guess, Snaith
adds. "The last round of tax
rebates exacerbated the impact
of the slowing economy on the
size of the budget deficit, push-
ing it to record levels," he said.
"But we ain't seen nuthin' yet"
Other highlights include:
* The economy will shed
three million payroll jobs
before the "bleeding" stops -
in 2010. Unemployment, a lag-


near future. Production of
corn-based ethanol is common,
but has been blamed for a
spike in corn prices that
helped fuel an economic down-
turn in agribusiness circles.
Nelson said if companies
like Rayonier could produce
ethanol from cellulose waste, it
could help reduce dependence
on petroleum products. "We
increasingly have ,to go to
other energy sc.urces - \w we're
going to have to be very cre-
ative iii alternative en,-rcva to
oil," he said. "Ethanol is very
promising based on cellulose.
We're doing an experiment


going indicator of the business
cycle, peaks at 8.4 percent in
2010 before slowly falling to 8
percent by the end of 2011.
* Oil prices will continue
to fall during the U.S. reces-
sion. The declines from this
point forward will be modest in
comparison to what we've seen
so far. Prices will climb back up
to the mid-$70s per barrel by
the end of 2011.
* The dollar continues to
appreciate against the euro and
pound throughout 2009. Des-
pite the problems in the U.S.
economy, things are far worse
in the United Kingdom and the
rest of Europe.
* Housing starts reach
their nadir in the second quar-
ter of 2009. Starts will only
slowly rise from this historic
low. Levels in 2011 will be
lower than the suppressed lev-
els of the 2007 housing starts.

So much for a crawling

Or for the ubiquitous neg-

These are very real and dis-

not enough to keep Fernan-

pushing ahead with a grand
plan to expand government-

You would think the city is
rolling in money with its dog-
matic pursuits, despite the sour
mood and environment else-
where. The city has declared
plans ;to hire a lobbyist to
secure funds for.such monu-
mental efforts as building a
cultural center/library and
move city operations to the old
post office on Centre Street.
Elsewhere, cities such as
Jacksonville are scraping for
finances and scrapping proj-
ects during an economic down-
town that could be the worst in
recent memory. To complicate
matters, fed-up Florida voters
have mandated that city and
county governments reduce
the property tax rates they col-
lect for operations.
This will mean fewer tax
dollars to support bloated and
excessive municipal budgets
around the state. Fernandina
Beach officials are apparently
ignoring this prognosis.
In addition, any inkling of

SThe best

is to offer premier- interest

It is difficult to determine
when credit markets will

cially true when numerous
states are asking the federal
government for funds to help
with their operating costs.
Therefore, unless Fernan-

entire idea will struggle.

Would be an optimistic plan
even during good times. In the

are grim. The lobbyist notion is
new, and with some merit.
However, federal and state

6AO PINION WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 3,2008/NEWS-LEADER

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/JIM PIERCE/AMELIA ISLAND


A newspaper is still


H ey, News-Leader, my
friend, it's good to
see you again. And
to be back in town
and on the island.
Yeah, I missed you - sort
of. Oh, I was able to click you
on my laptop in Maine all
summertime and check out
what's going on inside the city
limits, who's winning the golf
blitz at the club and how
many logging trucks ran red
lights on AlA, but it's not like
holding you in my hands,
turning you over, folding you
in half, and that kind of warm
stuff. '
At breakfast with a second
coffee or at lunch with my
sweet-tea-and-lemonade, or
after dinner with that second
glass of red wine. You are
there for me. And I give
thanks.
You're still available for
four bits in the boxy machine
with the window, each
Wednesday and Friday down
the corner. You're a bargain.


The real News-Leader is a pleasure to read,
to touch and to smell the dried ink.


And I know you won't be
happy to learn my friends still
use you to line their bird
cages or new puppy boxes, or
wrap up freshly-caught fish,
or wipe the dead bugs off
their headlights and wind-
shields with blue colored'
glass cleaner or pack you up
with used items found in the
attic, basement or garage and
mail you to EBay-God-knows-
where buyers.
I received last summer an
EBay-bought book in a box
stuffed with the Detroit News,
and it contained eight pages
of foreclosures in the real
estate section. There had to
be more than 800 listings.
The number sadly is now dou-
bled. Another item, this one
from China, was stuffed with
a Peking newspaper - it was


Greek to me - except for
Coke-Cola ads!
But you're still special,
News-Leader. You're old as
dirt, for goodness sake.
Perhaps more than the Palace
Saloon. And you are not a
weekly shopper. Nor a daily,
just hanging on. You are
twice weekly. And I hope you
are profitable, unlike the big
newspapers today.
A long time ago I attended
an intensified seminar by jour-
nalism icon Professor
Edmund C. Arnold, who
authored Modern Newspaper
Design. He discussed page
layout and "primary optical
area" (above fold, top left) and
"secondary optical area"
(below fold, bottom right) and
how the Western eye reads a

He also professed about

I recall as a kid our family
receiving the Newark (N.J)
Evening News:in the after-

stop at a busy corner of Ridge
Road and for a dime buy a
copy from a man in the mid-
dle of the street selling tomor-
row's New York Daily News! It
would have the four stars
printed in the upper right
hand corner. Each subse-
quent edition a star was
removed until the final edition
was published, mostly for
those late-awakening native
New Yorkers the next day!
After the Evening News
expired on Aug. 31,1972, we
began to buy the Newark
Star-Ledger Now, it is report-
ed it's about to go out of busi-
ness, as are many newspapers
around the country. Even the
weekly North Arlington (N.J.)
Leader, which I delivered
each Wednesday after school
from a canvas bag tied to my
Schwinn bike handle bars, is
long gone.
Advertising revenues are
way off for newspapers, read-
ership is down and younger
people no longer buy newspa-
pers to get their news. They
surf the Internet.
In the past 24 hours, more
than 24 million readers have
visited The Drudge Report on
the Interiet for breaking
news. If I were Matt Drudge,
I'dhave the sound of a cash
register blasting with each hit
on that website!
Internet "hits" are like cir-
culation to newspapers. The
higher thehits, the higher the
cost to advertise. That's why
TV stations, particularly the
news stations, are always
hawking "for more informa-

"take our daily poll at www

And that's why

would be proud of you. And
so am I.
When the Penn Central
Railroad went out of business
I heard someone say they for-
got what business they were
in. If they thought that
through, there would have
been a Penn Central Airlines.
They were in the transporta-
tion business. But they
thought they were a railroad
company.
One of my.bookmarked
sites on my laptop is
www.newseum.org, which
daily exhibits the front pages
of many newspapers across
the country. They even have
an international site for news-

Most are transitioning to web-

what'it is. You're a real good

the folks there for making it
so.
We hope for its longevity.

SVIEWPOINT/DENNIS TODD/AMELIA ISLAND


Teen brain not ready for prime time


n one of the first studies of its kind, the
Rand Corp. has identified a strong link
between adolescent sexuality and sex-ori-
ented sitcoms. Teenagers who watched
the most provocative television programs were
twice as likely to be involved in unplanned
pregnancies as those with the lowest expo-
sure. This is not the first study to demonstrate
that adolescents are easily influenced.
Stimulating videos, music and counter-cul-
ture ideas have been manipulating teenagers
for years. The importance of these new studies
is that they show how brain immaturity makes
young people much more susceptible to
unhealthy experiences resulting in permanent
brain changes.
SThe National Institute of Mental Health
reports that the wiring of teen brains responsi-
ble for decision-making, self-control and judg-
ment are incomplete and are undergoing con-
stant change until at least the age of 25. MRI
studies show that brain pathways that teens
use most often tend to survive while unused
circuitry whither and die. Brain development
therefore is quite vulnerable to change
depending upon negative or positive influ-


ences. This helps explain why some teens act
like they are from Mars while others sail
through adolescence with ease.
Even if we've always known this to be true;
the findings that adolescent brain growth is
heavily dependent upon the type of exposure
experienced should be a reminder to every
parent and teacher. Adolescent brains are vul-
nerable and are not just temporarily altered,
but become permanently "hardwired" simply
by what teens see, hear and do. Just as expo-
sure to brutality can make impressionable
teen brains more hostile, other influences can
choreograph the eventual structure of their
brains for good or for bad. .
Another Rand study found that adolescents
who made virginity pledges:were less likely to
be sexually active than their peers. The simple
act of pledging and avoiding exposure to sexu-
al influences in music and videos actually
made them less vulnerable. Further evidence
that early exposure leads to later behavior is
also found in addiction studies showing that
adult alcoholics and drug abusers experienced
excessive drinking or drug use as teenagers,
permanently altering their brain biology


toward depeAdence.
Douglas Abbott, a professor of child and
adolescent development at the University of
Nebraska, suggests that adolescent sexual ori-
entation is not simply initiated by the brain but
is equally influenced by choices and behavior.
This means that risky sexual behavior, straight
or gay, can alter brain structure and solidify
circuitry and prolong the unsafe behavior as
adults. Dr. Abbott's work has important impli-
cations for education. His work warns that
teens may not be ready to make wise decisions
involving sexual orientation.
The point is that many teenagers are
simply mentally less capable of dealing
with highly emotion-laden ideas or experi-
ences. It's not because they are morally weak
or unintelligent, but merely because their
brains are not fully formed enough to inocu-
late them from experiences that might be
harmful to them and their brains.
That being the case, parents and teachers
must carefully monitor and control what they
see, hear and do.

chologist living on Amelia Island


VIEWPOINT/PEIER JOHNSON/AMEIA ISLAND


AlA our own 'bridge to nowhere


The dustup between city officials and
Commissioner Ron Sapp over the lob-
byist issue is interesting political
drama, but the real debate should not
be on this topic but on the merits of the issue
of seeking earmarks in general and for the six-
laning of A1A in particular. -
Most voters, unfortunately, .do not have an
opportunity to see through the current smoke
in order to understand the real problem. To
argue over whether a particular law firm has
been chosen properly is to miss totally the sub-
stance of the underlying issue, Alittle back-
ground from my point of view might add some-
thing.
This decision to seek earmarks to resolve a
highway problem that has been frustrating our
local leaders and the development community
may violate Sunshine ordinances or open bid-
ding policies, but the real issue is not how we
seek the funds but whether we should as a
matter of policy. Finding funds to expand the
A1A corridor to six lanes is part of the issue,
and the other, and.by far more important part,
is whether.we should be expanding A1A in the
first place.
The A1A six-lane expansion earmark alter-
native first emerged from the infrastructure
task force that was assembled last year to find
solutions to traffic concurrency rules that are
holding up still more strip mall development on
'.*AA:'fRenmenber that concurrency means that
' a r:,acld., mnusit thve anl adequate si and -
quality to handle existing or anticipated traf-
fic)..
After months of discussion between devel-
opers, county officials and concerned citizens,
it became clear that the choices concerning
A1A.were to: 1) change the concurrency law,
2) violate thelaw or 3) identify the estimated
$185 million needed for an additional two lanes.
Since changing the state laws on highway
capacity is increasingly difficult given citizen
opposition across the state, and violating the
law was not a practical route, the predisposition
of the county staff was to seek funding throfigh
an earmark.
The irony in all this is the prediction by the
Florida Department of Transportation that by
the time the $185 million expansion would be
completed in 2016, the road would again be in
the same "failed" condition as it is today. And
with yet more strip malls.
But leaving inconsistencies aside, I am
more-interested in challenging the wisdom of
Seeking an earmark solution throughan
allegedly politically connected law firm.
Federal policy under the incoming administra-
tion in Washington (it would have been the
same under a McCain Administration) will
severely downplay the number and size of ear-
marks because of the corruption that has taint-
ed the process (remember Jack Abramoff and
Ted Stevens' "Bridge to Nowhere"). And there
also seems to be a new impulse at the federal
level to resolve transportation and other infra-
structure funding needs through a normal and


LovingFernandina
To (the Yulee writer of "Cars and buildings,"
Nov. 21) I salute you based on the fact that you
voiced your opinion. It might have carried more
weight if you actually lived in Fernandina Beach
because that's where our historic post office, the
old Baptist Church and our proposed downtown
waterfront park are located.
Nevertheless, I appreciate the comments..
Perhaps I'llsee him sometime on my daily jaunts
through historic downtown Centre Street. I enjoy
our little town so much that I welcome opinions
of other readers who (although he doesn't live
here) does care enough to express his opinion.
Why do I love Fernandina Beach? Read my
book, Remember Fernandina, and you'll see. It was
a great place to grow up and it is a great place to
retire. I've been everywhere in Florida, and the
sum of all our parts is superior to any other place
I've seen in the Sunshine State.
Keep those cards and letters coming. After all,
the News-Leader is a business too, and they need
to make money to survive, just like all of us. And
controversy does, sell newspapers!

transparent budgeting process. In otherwords,
making the system work.
However, if the local politicaldecision has
been made contrary to common sense and per-
suasive data to build an additional two lanes to
A1A, we at least should have the foresight to
. work through our elected representatives to
secure the funding. That is what we elect them,
to do. It should not be necessary to skirt the
democratic process by hiring special emis-
saries at high prices.
. We are playing an old game that has
become obsolete and disreputable. Let's think
about a new and modern approach that is in
tune with the new look in Washington and
hopefully for the country.
While it certainly seems reasonable to me
that competitive bidding is the fair and efficient
way to confirm a supplier contract for lobbying,
it also occurs to me that if we insist upon play-
ing this kind of a game a Washington-based
lobbyist makes more sense than one based in
Fernandina Beach. But to summarize the argu-
ment, two-lane expansion is a bad idea - our
own "Bridge to Nowhere."
The decision to. pursue earmarks is also a
bad idea. The argument over how a lobbyist
should be hired looks pretty silly in this con-
,text and takes our eye off the real important

Disrespect
Commissioner (Eric) Childers, there are no
words powerful enough to convey the disap-
pointment that I and many other longtime resi-
dents of Fernandina feel towards you for your
recent stage show of disrespect toward
Commissioner (Ron) Sapp ("City attorney irked,"
Nov. 21).
Your statement that Commissioner Sapp has
undermined public faith and that Commissioner
Sapp is the most destructive force in the city of
Fernandina Beach is absurd! Where have you
been for the last 23 years that Commissioner
Sapp has worked tirelessly for the benefit of the
residents of this great city?

issue.
IWhyhot think about solving the problem
ourselves. The first thing that occurs to me is
to write to our senators and congressmen,.
,about ourwrongheaded approach to the high-
way problem and express concern about
reliance on earmarks for a solution: Federal
and state funds certainly will be available for
our strategic highway arteries, but let's slow
down the strip mall growth until the budget
policies can catch up to overdue infrastructure
needs.
To make the system work properly, we need
a serious gas tax to conserve energy, push
away from foreign oil and from there dedicate
funding to road improvements and alternative
transport systems. Other Florida counties have
taken steps to solve their own transport issues
and by so doing have built a positive, coopera-
tive relationship with the Florida Department
of Transportation. It is said that Nassau County
does not have that kind of a relationship with
state agencies. If that is true, and there is anec-
dotal evidence that it is, then how can we seri-
ously expect that earmarks would be forthcom-
ing with even the best of lobbyists? ,

Spiritof collaboration
There are dozens and dozens of non-profit
organizations in Nassau County, all struggling to
.sustain their worthwhile endeavors.
That task is made increasingly difficult not
only by the economic downturn, but also by the.
fact that everyone seems to solicit the same
limited number of individuals and businesses.
That's why the recent fund-raising event featur-
ing The Original Driftei-s, "This Magic Moment,"
was truly magical. Rather than compete for funds,
two charitable organizations with similar interim
ests, Barnabas Center and America's Youth, Inc.,
decided to work together to' produce this
event. Neither could have pulled it off alone,
and in fact, depended on the good will of others,
all of whom deserved to be recognized and
thanked:
The News-Leader, for running complimenta-
ry public service ads for the event; Amelia Island
Plantation, for providing the venue at minimal
cost; Days Inn, for offering accommodations;
Doo-Wop Diner, for feeding the entertainers;
Amelia Community Theatre, for loaning equip-:
ment; Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival, for
printing the tickets; Terpsichorean Dance'Club,
for demonstrating some dance steps; DJ "T.G."
for spinning a great selection of music; Rodney
Hurst Sr., for volunteering to be the evening's
emcee.
It was an honor and privilege to have worked
with these two organizations to facilitate this
event, and gives me hope that others will find
ways to collaborate rather than compete.

Watson, volunteer
naturalist at Fort
Clinch State Park,
has an idea for me, I take
advantage of it. So when he e-
mailed me, "Do you want to
help dig up that alligator nest?
I've got permission," I jumped
at the chance.
In late September, Carl
had led me into the fringes of
the Willow Pond trail in Fort
Clinch State Park, to see a
handful of newly hatched
gators he had discovered. I
dutifully followed him into the
swampy brush and heard the
babies croaking their "ohh-
rump" calls for their momma,
invisible to us but nearby, no
doubt. We left before I got a
good look at the babies - and
before momuna got a good
look at us. But without overly
cautious me around, Carl saw
the babies a number of times.
"Small ones," he said, the
smallest ones he's ever seen,
and he's seen bunches.
With a bit of searching,,
Carl eventually found the alli-
gator nest near the Willow
Pond trail but invisible to
everyone but him. For about
,two and a half months a
female gator will guard her
nest, until the babies start
hatching, then she helps
them hatch and stays with
them for a few more months
in an uncharacteristic display
of maternal devotion for a rep-
tile species.
But by late fall the babies
were long gone and momma
was no longer nearby. With
no risk of harming babies or
eggs, or being harmed our-
selves, it was time to investi-
gate. How many eggs had
hatched? Failed to hatch?
What else would this nest
have to tell us?
And thus one cool fall day
I joined Carl and park staffers
Rhonda and Priscilla for an

Excavation
of the nest.
Following
Carl about
50 paces off
the trail and
into the
woods the
_ .nest was
hard to
WILD miss. Unlike
WAYS a much
smaller alli-
gator nest
Pat Carl had
Foster-Turley seen in the
area years


ago, this one was in classic
proportions, a.heaping
mound of humus, pine nee-
dles, roots and shoots maybe
three feet high and five feet in
diameter.
Using her innate maternal
wisdom, the gator had con-
structed her nest at the base
of a tree well above any flood-
ing level, insuring the dry and
warm incubation conditions
the eggs required. And she
had placed the nest near
Willow Pond, where she
could keep an eye out for any
predators and repair any
storm damage while luxuriat-
ink in a hollowed out watch-
pool she maintained nearby.
We were apparently not
the first to survey this nest.
One large hole near the front
top of the nest, littered with
the fragments of six empty
hatched out and dried up
eggshells, revealed the path
the youngsters had taken in
leaving their nest. On the
back side of the nest another
smaller hole revealed where a
raccoon, most likely, had also
dug into the nest just a day or
so earlier, but found little of
reward, or so it appeared
from the lack of disturbance
to the site.
Justlike the raccoon, Carl
dug a trench into the top of
the nest, seeking-the nest cav-


FEDERAL EMPLOYEES wi


ity. He found it, but it was
empty. There were no
unhatched eggs, nothing but
a bunch of large bull ants
streaming out towards Carl's
gloved hands and unprotect-
ed bare arms. Time to quit,
but not before covering'the
nest back up again to pre-
serve the memory for anyone
else that might also find it.
According to the late great
Florida naturalist Archie Carr,
an average alligator nest has
between 30 and 70 eggs, but
this one, with maybe six
hatched eggs and a few oth-
ers consumed by ants or
maybe a lucky raccoon, fell
far short. Added to the fact
that the four or five hatch-
lings Carl did see were small-
er than usual, it was a poor
nesting year, for whateVer rea-
son, for this particular gator
out at Willow Pond.
It is amazing to me that we
still have wild areas like
Willow Pond right here on
Amelia Island, a remnant of
the world that Archie Carr
revealed for many of us
decades ago. I was fortunate
to study with Archie when I
was a grad student at the
University of Florida, and
knowing him shaped my
career. Archie died in 1987
but he lives on in his natural
history writings that still
inspire Carl and our sea turtle
volunteers and new genera-
tions of nature.observers
here and far.
Read Archie's book A
Naturalist in Florida and
hopefully you too will gain a
deeper appreciation for the
still-wild bits of Florida that
make an adventure like dig-
ging up an alligator nest still
possible on Amelia Island.

Projects continue


on Egans Creek


JOHN CARR
For the News-Leader
Here is a December update
for construction on the city's
Egans Creek Greenway.
* Water control structure.
The basic water control portion
of the project is complete. The
portion of the project that will
keep the entrance closed for a
while longer is the rerouting of
the ditch that runs alongside
Jasmine from Jean LaFitte. This
will be routed under the cur-
rent path to an entry point on
the saltwater side of the struc-
ture. This should move quickly.
A sub-contractor will do most of
the work under the supervision
of the current Hal Jones Team.
The water levels on the salt-
water side will be adjusted to
minimize the overflow to the
south. This will take some time
and a trial and measure effort.
More sheet flows of water and
more even distribution of the
water over all of the spartina
grass beds are positive results.
As stated last time, they are
already seeing salinity improve-
ments in the main part of the
creek. What is needed is a fair-
ly wet spring to flood the areas
that had acted like holding
ponds earlier. The salinity in
those places will continue until
flushed by rainfall.
Overall, there has been fair-
ly quick response to some of
the actions taken so far.
* Dead tree site renovation.
The contract to remove the
remaining danger trees has
been awarded to Asplundh
Tree Service. These are the


same orange trucks that can
be seen clearing trees out of
the power lines in this area.
Watch out for signs of clo-
sures of all or parts of the south
side of Jasmine as this project
moves forward. This was to
start on Dec. 1 and run 30 days.
The trees will be removed from
the site as they are cut.
To remind, the action is
within 50 feet of the paths and
roads, the stumps may be up
to two feet above ground level,
the stumps will remain in place,
the trees are to be removed
from the site and the paths
returned to their current con-
dition. The original 502 or so
count is being revised like the
stock market, sharply down-
ward. Mother Nature has
helped by blowing over more
than 100 of the trees previous-
ly marked.
The water levels are drop-
ping in the previously ponded
areas. The only problem is that
it is leaving salt behind. That
will be one of the hardest parts
of the restitution of the area.
* Greenway improvements.
There were four benches
placed along several paths in
the Atlantic to Jasmine portion
of the greenway. Sadly, some-
one decided that they were not
needed and pulled one of them
out of the ground. This is not
isolated vandalism. The boxes
for the maps at each entryway
are constantly being broken out
and the trail markers are also
being vandalized on a regular
basis. It is really difficult to
have something for all when a
few are being ugly.

The Martin Luther King Jr.
.Center will be getting new
Musco Sports Lighting for its
basketball court, as approved
by city commissioners in a 4-1
vote at their Nov. 18 meeting.
The lighting will cost
$19,250 and the installation, by
M. Gay Constructors Inc., will
cost $12,200. Commissioner
Susan Steger, citing uncertain
financial times for the city,
voted against the new equip-
ment purchase.

the project are included in the
2008-9 budget that was
approved earlier in the year by
city commissioners.
Coverdell said the recre-
ation center is well-used by res-
idents of all ages, and as a part
of the city's recreation depart-
ment, has many programs that
are co-sponsored with the
Atlantic Avenue Recreation
Center. He noted that the city
has a unique recreation depart-
ment in that it has three loca-
tions, including MLK, the Peck


Center and the Atlantic Center.
The centers offer a variety of
activities including sports,
recreation and the arts.
Activities for senior citizens,
such as bingo, card games and
exercise classes also are avail-
able.
In addition to sports and
recreation programs, the MLK
Center also offers after-school
tutoring for children from 2-6
p.m. with trained teachers avail-
able to help with homework.
Transportation is provided.


Coverdell said children are
referred to the program by
their teachers. The facility also
offers a summer program with
tutors from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and
a free summer lunch program.
The facility is also used by
the Boys & Girls Club, which
uses the swimming pool, and
by the Boy Scouts and Cub
Scouts. Little League baseball
and T-ball programs also are
available. Swim teams from sur-
rounding towns also use the
pool, although it does not oper-
ate year-round as it is not
enclosed. The pool is, however,
wired for heat.
According to Coverdell, the
MLK main building was con-
structed in 1956. For informa-
tion on programs offered by

tion Department, call 261-7350.

Woman, 8 children escape house fire in Yulee


A woman and eight children
escaped Wednesday afternoon
after a house caught fire in
Yulee.
Nassau County Fire Rescue
responded to a fire call in the
86000 block of Callaway Drive
in Yulee about 12:15 p.m.
Firefighters went into the struc-
ture where a stovetop kitchen
fire was rapidly burning upward
into the cabinets and horizon-
tally across the surrounding
counter top, according to a
press release.
"I went into the kitchen and
put some cooking oil into a fry-
ing pan, covered it with a lid,
and turned on the burner in
preparation for some chicken
wings," resident Christina
Murphy'was quoted as saying.
"I went into the children's bed-
room to check on them for their
nap when.I heard a loud 'pop'
and came back into the kitchen
to see the flames coming from
the stove."
Murphy grabbed a portable
fire extinguisher from the cab-
inet under the sink but said she
could not quickly determine
how to use the extinguisher to
put out the flames.
'There are a variety of
situations that lead to unat-
tended cooking fires and the
most common is when the cook
becomes distracted and leaves
the kitchen," said Fire Chief
Chuck Cooper. "The most
common distractions are attend-
ing to children, answering

Tips to avoid
kitchen fires
Nassau County Fire
Rescue offers the following
recipe cooking safely:
* Stay in the kitchen.
don't leave cooking food
unattended. (Stand by your
pan!)
* Wear short or tight-fit-
ting sleeves. (Long loose
sleeves are more likely to
catch on fire or get caught
on pot handles.)
* Don't become distract-
ed.
* Enforce a "kid-free
zone" of three feet around
the stove. Turn pot handles
inward facing the wall.
* Keep the area around
the stove clear of towels.
papers, pot holders or any-
thing that could burn.
* Cook at indicated tem-
perature settings rather than
higher settings.
* Regularly clean cooking
equipment so there are no
cooking materials, food items
or grease accumulation.
* Have a pot lid handy to
smother a pan fire. Do not
attempt to pick up the pot or
pan. Shut off the heat and
cover the fire with a lid.
* Do not use water. It will
cause splashing and spread
the fire.

This was written by Shannon
Malcom of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office,
the city of Fernandina Beach,
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates suspi-
cion ofa crime, not guilt.
Vehicles burgled
At least three vehicles were
reported burglarized Saturday
morning or Friday night in the
Page Hill subdivision in Yulee.
Two vehicle owners reported
DVD players missing from their
cars, which had been left
unlocked, and an iPod was
reported stolen from the third
vehicle.
Two of the vehicles were
parked at homes on Graham
Court and a third on Worthing-
ton Drive. According to police,
none of the vehicles was locked
when the burglaries occurred.
The case is under investigation.
Stun gun used
A Nassau County deputy
used a stun gun on a Fernan-
dina Beach man early Monday
morning at a Yulee nightclub
after a physical altercation with
a suspect.
According to police, Robert
Aaron Schroeder, 28, and his


.1!
.4".I


twin brother Michael McNally
Schroeder were arrested after
the manager attempted to get
them to leave The Mill because
they were "highly intoxicated."
Police say Michael
Schroeder became physically
aggressive with the officers
while he was being interviewed.
Deputy Johnny Carter report-
edly was leading him to a
"secured area" when Robert
Schroeder came up behind the
deputy and was stopped by
Deputy Lance McConnell.
According to the police report,
Michael Schroeder started kick-
ing Carter in the leg and Robert
Schroeder was "repeatedly
refusing to stop fighting."
McConnell used his stun
gun on Robert Schroeder's
back; Schroeder refused med-
ical treatment and was arrest-
ed with his brother for disor-
derly intoxication, resisting
arrest without violence and bat-
tery on a law enforcement offi-
cer and taken to the Nassau
County Jail.

911 dispatcher


held for theft;


2 deputies resign


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A 911 dispatcher was
arrested Monday for alleged-
ly falsifying her time cards to
earn more pay than she
should. She also is accused of
having a sexual relationship
with a Nassau County deputy
in his patrol vehicle and receiv-
ing photos of another deputy's
genitals on her cell phone.
The dispatcher and two
deputies are no longer employ-
ed by the sheriff's office.
Melissa Leigh Sharkey, 28,
was arrested for grand theft
after investiga-
.. - tors deter-
. mined she fal-
S4 sified her time
sheets over
i'i the course of
S about ayearto
Sharkey receive $1,872
more pay than
she should
have.
Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves said
Sharkey was terminated from
employment. Deputy Rick
Baldwin, with whom she was
allegedly involved in a sexual
relationship, and Deputy Scott
Dover, who reportedly sent her
the inappropriate pictures,
have resigned.
Seagraves said internal
investigations are still ongoing
into the actions of Baldwin and
Dover.
Sharkey also was accused
of putting Visine into the drink
of a coworker to try to make"
her sick, the sheriff said.
"During the investigation,


The dispatcher
received photos ofa
deputy's genitals on
her cellphone.

... Sharkey's signed time sheets
were reviewed and compared
against her actual computer-
generated log in and log out
times for the last year,"
Seagraves said. "Upoli careful
review of these documents, it
revealed 42 discrepancies from
Sept. 11, 2007 through Nov. 1,
2008."
Seagraves said most of the
discrepancies caused Sharkey
to get overtime pay she was
not entitled to.
"When tabulating the mon-
etary value received, through
the fraudulently obtained
hours, it was revealed that the
amount totaled $1,872.11,"
Seagraves said.
The results of the Nassau
County Sheriffs Office internal
investigation were given to the
State Attorney's Office and a
warrant for Sharkey's arrest
was issued on the charge of
grand theft.
Sharkey has been released
from jail on $2,002 bond.
Seagraves said Nassau County
Circuit Court Judge Robert
Foster set the bond as a "cash
only" bond, requiring Sharkey
to pay the full $2,002 up front
rather than pay a percentage
through a bondsman.
"I think he did that so we
could at least get our money
back," he said.

SUBMITTED
Bill White, public defender for Nassau, Clay and
Duval counties, with Joyce Frink, president of the
Democratic Club of Amelia Island, during a campaign
stop earlier this fall.


After 34 years,


White to exit as


public defender


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader

As Bill White, public
defender for Nassau, Clay and
Duval counties, prepares to
leave office after 34 years, he
said his main concern is what
will happen to his employees
as the transition is made to
newly elected . Public
Defender Matt Shirk, who
takes office in January.
"My concern is for the peo-
ple who work here now, they
have established a transition
team, they're working on final-
izing their decisions, does any-
one have to leave and, if they
do, when do they have to
leave," White said. "I'll have
time to look at what I'm going
to do come January."
Of course, White was hop-
ing for another four years with
the office. But the Democrat
lost his bid for re-election to
Republican Shirk on Nov. 4.
He's taking hiis departure
in stride, even throwing
around the idea of retiring.
But he said the Fourth
Judicial Circuit Public
Defender's Office is the best
he's seen in terms of staffing,
and he hopes it will stay as
intact as possible.
"I told Matt when I met
with him last week that my
only two concerns are that the
people who might have to
leave the office get adequate
notice so we can help them to
... have a soft landing, and that
we maintain the high level of
service to the clients that I
think we've always delivered,"
White said. "We've estab-
lished a good core of attor-
neys, and we've set them on a
course to deliver excellent
service."
But last weelt Shirk
announced that 10 attorneys
would not be retained after
Jan. 5; all of the attorneys
work out of the Jacksonville
office. In an e-mail Monday,
White said he was told the
legal staff at the Nassau
County Public Defender's
Office will remain the same
"for now."
White said he wasn't sur-
prised at the outcome of the
election. Polling in Duval and
Clay predicted a strong show-
ing for Republican presidential
candidate John McCain, and
White said there was "an
awful lot of straight ticket vot-
ing."
At times he was even told
by constituents that he'd lost
their vote when he said he
planned to votefor President-
Elect Barack Obama, a
Democrat.
"It was that strong," White
said of anti-Democrat feelings.
in some areas. "I don't think it
was a matter of voting for Bill
White or Matt Shirk, but peo-
ple didn't know much about
the public defender's office ...
in Duval County, there were
more than 30,000 ballots that


did not show a vote for public
defender."
White admits overall, he's
been blessed with his career.
Working as an assistant pub-
lic defender was the first job
he got after graduating law
school - and he liked it so
much, he never left.
"Most people are not near-
ly so fortunate as I've been,
to leave law school and get
your first job and stay there 34
years and be able to make it to
the senior positions," he said.
"I've been incredibly fortunate
... I can't look back on my
career and see anything but a
wonderful experience with
wonderful people."
Earning salaries that on
average are significantly lower
than private defense attorneys
make and dealing with heavy
caseloads, White said the
attorneys who stay with the
office do so because they're
dedicated.
"The highest paid lawyer
in the office makes about
entry-level salary at a major
law firm... and that's after 30
years of experience," White
said. 'That person was first in
his class at law school, he
could have gone anywhere...
he's here because he loves it,
it's the people and iC'. what I :
cartie Hie'r ftW' ln thre.Tfit
place, to provide services to
.poor people."

McCloskey grappling with the guys


BETH JONES
News-Leader

Lilly McCloskey has to watch her
weight. She doesn't do it to fit into
those skinny jeans. She does it to
remain in the 103-pound weight class.
McCloskey, who turns 18 on
Friday, is a senior wrestler at Fernan-
dina Beach High School. She got her
first win on the mat for the varsity
grapplers in their season opener at
Bishop Kenny Nov. 19. She pinned
her male opponent in 3:26.
"It felt really good, like all my hard
work had paid off," she said. "It just
motivated me more to work harder."
McCloskey first wrestled her soph-
omore year but was sidelined for the
season with a broken collarbone in
the Pirates' first home match.
She played soccer last year for
FBHS and decided this fall she'd be
back in a singlet to wrestle.
"My mom didn't want me to go out
for wrestling last year, so I played soc-
cer," McCloskey said. "I just wanted to
wrestle again. I like it a lot.
"I'm not really scared about get-
ting hurt at all. I just get really nerv-
ous. My mom is terrified. Sometimes
she can't even watch."
McCloskey worked out a deal with
her father, Stephen, who was unde-
feated atthe 112-pound class ag a high
school wrestler.
McCloskey had'to lose 12 pounds
and drop from the 112-pound class to
103..
"It was more competitive for her
and less chance of injury," he said.
"I weighed 116 pounds before I.
wrestled," McCloskey said. "I had to
cut a lot of weight, which was really
hard."
But she dropped a weight class,
even surprising her coaches.
"She was many pounds from her
desired weight class when we had our
first preseason meeting and the atti-
tude she perceived from the coaching
staff was that she would not be able to
get to 103 pounds," FBHS Coach
Mark Durr said. "Lilly being Lilly, she
just smiled and went out there on'her
own for the most part and chiselled
herself down because she wanted to
and also to prove us wrong.
"Lilly doesn't know the word can't,
which is why she belongs with Pirate
wrestling."
McCloskey's father wasn't sur-
prised his daughter wanted to follow
in his footsteps - "I was always grap-
pling with her since she was a tod-
dler" -but he wasn't pleased at first
either.
"I was against it," he said.
"Adolescence. Boys rubbing up
against her."
But after speaking with the coach-.
es two years ago, he approved.
Her father, who ran a wellness cen-
ter, was instrumental in her diet reg-
imen to drop the weight this season.
"He tells me what to eat,"
McCloskey said. "I have two protein
shakes a day and one meal. He tells
me not to put too much dressing if
I'm eating a salad. My friends think it's
weird. None of my clothes really fit
me. It's annoying."
Being the first female on the Pirate
wrestling team has been a challenge
for McCloskey.
"The guys on my team are cool,"
she said. "They'll pick on me but it's
like older brothers.
"I don't think they took me seri-
ously at first. I definitely had to earn
their respect. After a week they knew
I really wanted to do it. It was hard,
like the conditioning and stuff. If you
didn't really want to do it, you would-
n't stay with it."
Seeing girls at matches isn't unusu-
al but having one on the team is new
for the Pirates.
'There are always girls at match-
es," team co-captain Ian Muir said.
"It's not as sexist as a lot of people
think.
"Lilly did prove herself. Against

room), she does really well. We don't
have to defend her. She does pretty
well for herself "
'"When other guys see me they just
see this little blonde girl trying to
wrestle," McCloskey said.
She may be petite and blonde, but
McCloskey has a message for her
opponents: "They should take me seri-
ously."
And she didn't feel bad about beat-
ing a boy either.
"He was making fun of me before
the niatch," NlcCloskey said. "When
he shookmy hand, he laughed at me.
I would have felt bad if he was nice.
"(Afterwards when he shook my
hand, it looked like he was going to
cry. Oh we.L"
McCloskey has to dress in a dif-
ferent room and i i always weighed

And, yes. she wears makeup dur-
ing her matches.
"I used to not. but I starting think-
ing maybe if they thought I was hot
they would get a little distracted,"
McCloskey said.
McCloskey's boyfriend is a former
Pirate wreslk r as well.
"I think she's doing an awesome
job," said Janmes Devlin. a 2006 FBHS
graduate who is currently studying
engineering at the University of
Florida. "I've been working on moves
with her."
Devlin has seen NlcCloskey wrTes-
tle twice this season.
'I'm proud ,f her." he said.
McCloskey said her male oppo-
nents don't go easy on her just
because she's a girl.
"They definitely n don't want to get
made fun of. so they go their hardest,"
she said. "I want t,:' have fun with it
but I really want t':i win."
"Even though she is the same
young lady with her teammates, it is
a different Lilly when it is time to com-
pete," Coach Durr said "She is as
fierce a competitor as any male or
female in any of our programs.
"We were especially impressed
with her giving wrestling a second
try after what happened her sopho-
more year. But, knowing Lilly. you
know she v.ould not be turned away
by anything, especially fear. She is
motivated.
"She is treated by the guys on the
team as onrk- ': their own. but they
also have this kind of unspoken
respect for Lilly and they never cross
the line. :

Pirates

Indians

BETH JONES
News-Leader

The Pirates met little resistance
in chalking up their second win of
the season Saturday. They. beat
Baldwin 78-26 to improve to 2-0.
"It was a case of us having a lot
returning players and Baldwin los-
inig a lot of players and having to
start over from scratch," said Matt
Schreiber, head boys basketball
coach at Fernandina Beach High
School.
"From the start, we were more
composed and did
the things we have
to to be success-
ful. They're still
trying to ind their
way."
The Pirates led
21-3 after a quar-
ter and 46-14 at
halftime. Baldwin
mustered just 12 Holfey
points in the sec-
ond half while
FBHS scored 32.
Juniors Patrick
Garvin and Carlos
Holcey led FBHS
in scoring with 14.
points apiece. Tai
Afford and An-
drew Vrancic had
10 each. Terin
Dallas scored nine Garvin
and James Russell
chipped in eight.
Holcey had five rebounds, four.
assists and six steals. Garvin had
two of each in rebounds, assists and
steals. Russell had seven rebounds.

Old School'and NewAgeGators should meet in the middle


W ~ ith the approach of perhaps the
most anticipated SEC champi-
onship game in history, there are
two very different, very segregat-
ed kinds of Florida Gator fans whose confi-
dence resides on opposite ends of the spec-
trum. For the purpose of identification, let's
call Group A "Before Steve Spurrier" or "BSS"
and Group B "After Steve Spurrier" or ... OK,
scratch that. Let's just call Group A "Old
School Gators" and Group B "New Age
Gators."
While both Old School Gators and New
Age Gators have common interests in mind,
beginning with a SEC championship Saturday,
both groups will take very different emotional
paths to and beyond Atlanta. Old School
Gators will expect the worst and hope for the
best, while New Age Gators will take the word
"arrogance" to new heights. With that in mind,
below is a little "take it or leave it" advice from
a guy who has spent time on both sides.
New Age Gators beware: The Alabama
Crimson Tide will be by far and away the best
football team Florida has faced all season,

CRAWFORD


hence their 12-0 record and
the No. 1 national ranking.
No matter how many
national writers, or talking
heads might use word's like.
"unstoppable" or "unbeat-
able" in connection with the
Gators, don't buy into it. I
know it's hard to ignore Joe
Blow when he says that the
Gators may have the most
prolific offense in the history
of college football, but realize
that it's just hyperbole -
methodically laid out for web
hits and television ratings.
-Think Nebraska '95 or,
better yet, 'Bama '99 when
you feel your confidence bor-


during on cockiness. After all, it was an under-
rated Crimson Tide team that embarrassed
Florida 34-7 in the 1999 SEC championship
game and made the MARTA ride back to
Peachtree Street an almost unbearable one.
Keep that in mind as you crash the www.roll


bamaroll.com message board with your utter-
ances of Gator grandeur.
For a fresher look at Florida's invincibility,
take some time to revisit the Ole Miss mes-
sage boards and search the archives using the
key word phrase "31-30." That should help you
take some hot air out of that balloon.:
Old School Gators, with all due respect, i
mustinform you that Doug Dickey is no
longer the coach of the University of Florida.
The Astroturf at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium went
the way of the 6-5 season and you now have
more of a reason to travel to games than to
merely watch Emmitt break 100.
Just to bring you up to speed, old timers,
there is this not-so-new concept called the SEC
championship game in which your team is
about to make its ninth appearance in 17 sea-
sons. It's really legal to not only be happy that
the Gators are playing for their seventh SEC
crown but to throw caution to the wind and
expect them to obtain it
Seriously, how much fun can you really be
having if anytime someone predicts Floiida to
win a game you immediately go into doom and


gloom mode? What glory can be found in the
bottom of that Pepto-Bismol dispenser cup you
routinely fill during weeks leading up to cham-
pionship games?
With all the above said, New Age Gators,
you deserve to be proud of your team and con-
fident in its ability to beat Alabama. Just keep
your head about you now so you don't lose
your mind in the event that a very good
Crimson Tide team adds one more win to its
undefeated season.
And as for you, Old School Gators, take the
leap of blind faith and try to have some fun
Saturday. Maybe use some shoe polish on
your rear window for your trip to Atlanta. Go
out on a limb and write something like,
"Alabama is Gator Bait."
Because this is in fact a new age of Florida
football, Old School Gators, where it's OK not
to expect "Fourth and Dumb" or "Run,-
Lindsay, Run."

W e talked about getting into trouble
when you hit the ball into the trees a
couple of weeks ago, but another
huge problem is \hen the ball comes
to rest on the wrong side of a tree. In
this case, we rarely ever have a shot
: to get the ball closer to the hole.
Therefore, our most obvious reaction is to cut our loss-
es and hit away from the target toward a dear area.
Here's a trick shot that may give you another option to
think about. If you are feeling really daring sometime,
try taking a one-handed swing at the ball.with' your
back to the target. Stand upright with your back facing
the target and play the ball off the toe of your foot. What
you are essentially trying to do is to make a punch shot,
so make sure that your hand stays ahead of the club-
.head throughout the swing and the most important
concept is to hit down on the ball.


Sweden's Heririk.Stehson and Robert Karlsson birdied the first hole and
added eight more birdies in the final round of the World Cup of.Golf to give - --S
Sweden its second World Cup title. Sweden finished with a 9-under-par 63 in '-.
alternate-shot play to beat Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez and Pablo Larrazabal,---
by three strokes. Americans Ben Curtis and Brandt Snedeker finished ninth.
Sweden's only other victory in the event came in 1991, when Per-Ulrik Johansson
and Anders Forsbrand beat Wales by a stroke in Rome. The Swedes were the favorites enter-
ing the tournament, and had two of the three players in the field ranked in the top 20 in the world
rankings. Karlsson, who won the European Tour money title this season, was No. 6 and Stenson
12th. Spain's Miguel Jimenez was ranked 20th.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 3.2008/NEWS-LEADER


A family



outdoor



Christmas

I know a lot of parents will be purchasing a
variety of electronic games for their chil-
dren this year during the Christmas holi-
days. What parents don't realize is their
children will be spending more time in the
house instead of getting outside and enjoying
the great outdoors.
I have heard time and again, "My children
are really not interested in fishing."
Do your children a big favor and give them
a gift this Christmas that will get them away
from those computer games and out into the
great outdoors.
Many area sporting good stores offer fish-
ing rod packages, which come with a rod, reel
and lures. If your children have never fished
before, this makes for a great
Christmas present. A fishing
tackle box filled with a few
basic lures, pliers and line is
also a great gift for your
young fishermen. If they are
old enough to read, a fishing
book makes for great reading
Material when weather won't
allow any outdoor activities.
OUTDOORS Fishing videos also make for
S...- a perfect.gift for young out-
7errdoorsmen at Christmastime.
TlerryLacoss Try to purchase a book or
video that is closely related with our local
fresh and saltwater fishing.
Mothers can purchase a gift certificate for
a guided fishing trip for their husband and
children, which can be enjoyed anytime dur-
ing the following year. Guided trips include a
party boat fishing trip that costs from $75-100
per person. A backwater fishing trip for two to
four passengers ranges from $350-400 for a
half day fishing charter. A six-passenger off-
shore fishing charter for big game fish is nor-
mally $600 for a four-hour charter. Many of
these charters are listed in the yellow pages in
the local phone book.
I believe I mentioned this great Christmas
gift in last year's fishing column - a fish
cleaning set. My wife gave me one several
Christmases ago.and I still appreciate it every
time I need to clean our catch. Fish cleaning
sets come with three to four varieties of filet
knives, a cutting board, fish cleaning gloves
and a knife sharpener. The one thing that I
really appreciate about my cleaning kit is'the
knives can be stored in the container where
they don't become rusty and you don't have to
worry about them accidentally cutting anyone.
A unique gift I have also found very useful
for the outdoorsman in your family is a GPS
thaftIu can;.e.boplAn your vehicle and in- rw,
your boat. Obtously when I drive nrut of tn.ri
my GPS dirMVline straight'to my destination
by entering the address. It even talks to me
and tells me when and where to turn. Many of
these GPSs can be used in your boat as well
and become a backup when your boat's GPS
fails. I have actually had this happen and,
believe me, a backup GPS becomes a life saver
when you are several miles offshore in a big
storm or several miles in the marsh.

NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACH, FL


A day on the water drives home lessons of conservation


t had been quite a while since I
had attempted to fit myself in a
kayak and explore the marshes
off Little Talbot Island. Invited
by John Adornato, the regional direc-
tor of the National Park
Conservation Association, I could not
pass up the opportunity to join a
kayaking group exploring Simpson's
Creek and the area around Ft.
George Island just south of Amelia
Island.
In hopes of increasing the aware-
ness of the park land in Northern
Florida, Adornato invited a group of
supporters of the conservancy to
take a kayak trip.
S The group included
active members of
the conservancy
and other regional
S groups working to
Save and protect
' Northern Florida's
' endangered land.
We met at Kayak
FROM Amelia on Little
THE Talbot Island.
PORCH We are quick to
think of our highly
visible national
Dickie parks with their
Anderson dramatic mountain
ranges, deep dra-
matic canyons and vast, dangerous
rivers, but may not immediately
think of the quiet gentle marshes
that hug the coast of Northern
Florida.
We were joined by Park Ranger
Richard Bryant and accompanied by

A varied crew joins for a kayak trip and conservation lesson.


Ray Hetcha of Kayak Amelia.
Hetchka and his wife, Jody, are the
official outfitters for the preserve.
Their passion is evident. Jody
shared, "Ray and I have always been
driven by the belief that getting peo-
ple to actually experience the salt
marsh ecosystem is the best way to
get them to protect it."
We were soon on the water, life
preservers were clicked into place
and we were ready to set out. Once
in the water, comfort levels were test-
ed. Some on the trip were clearly
experienced'and some were first-


timers. Safe and relatively stable in
the water, we waited for a signal,
Paddles began to flick at the dark
water and we were off. Walls of
bright green spartina grass contrast-
ed with the lightly clouded pale blue
sky and dark water. The absolute
quiet added to the serenity of the
morning. The quiet was only inter-
rupted by the odd body-throwing
antics of the silvery mullet in the
water ahead of us. An American
eagle soared above our heads.
Elegant egrets worked quietly on the
edge of the marsh grasses looking


for snacks.
A sandy beach tempted the group
and we pulled in to give Bryant a
chance to give an overview of the
park and its increasing problems
with silt.
"We're going to lose this, "Bryant
shared with the group, "if we don't
do something to stop the silt from fill-
ing in our salt marshes."
There are voices calling for
action, but more are needed. In 1999,
the National Park Service, the
Florida Park Service and the city of
Jacksonville joined to form a partner-


ship, the Timucuan Trail State and
National Parks. This is no small com-
mitment. The partnership enhances
and protects a coastline estuary sys-
tem that is 50 times bigger than
Central Park.
No kayak outing with the
Hetchkas is complete without
a taste of their famous chocolate
chip cookies. After our snack we
pulled our crayon colored crafts
back in the water and headed
for the next destination, Ft. George-
Island. As the group approached the
wide island, the silt accumulation
became even more apparent.
Beautiful white sand is filling in the
wide river.
We treasured our morning on the
water and emerged newly committed
to adding our voices to those work-
ing to preserve the quiet beauty that
we may be too quick to take for
granted.
A quote of Theodore Roosevelt's
seems to say it all: "The wildlife and
its habitat cannot speak. So we must
and we will."

Look into my' eyes, they
are begging for a good home.
I was saved by a kind lady
from a man who just tied me
to a chain and left me out
back.
She asked if she could
have me and then I learned
what love and care was all
about. She named me "Bud"
and took me to the vet and
got all my shots and had me
neutered. She now says I'm
ready to find a home of my
own.
I am very obedient and
smart. I know how to sit and
am learning to stay. I believe I
could learn to do just about


anything if you give me the
time and show me how. I am
very playful and LOVE other


dogs. I would really need a
playmate and a large yard to
be the best dog I can be. I am
so loving and sweet.
Curious as a cat best
describes me! I'm a sweet, 10-
month-old girl named "Liz." I
love to explore and check
things out. I am quite the
socialite and really enjoy
being with people. I thrive on
attention but am not a big
snuggler. I like my space! If
you are looking for the per-
fect holiday cat, then I guaran-
tee, I can give you the best
present you can get this year
- lots and lots of love!

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2008 LEISURE News-Leader


Volunteers on a mission to feed the hungry


JIM KELLY
For the News-Leader

Gleaners Dispatch volun-
teers at the Callahan -fair-
grounds enjoyed a holiday
potluck meal and fellowship
Nov. 17 at the Callahan fair-
grounds.
"If you have never been to
the fairgrounds on Mondays to
observe this group as they
receive, classify and then dis-
tribute fresh food to hungry
people, you have missed a well-
oiled machine in operation,"
said Robert Hamrick, the all-
volunteer spiritual and com-
munity leader.
Hamrick and his wife,
Charlotte, began working with
Gleaners Dispatch, Inc, a
Jacksonville 501c3, back in 2003
in Callahan.
Together the volunteers
feed all comers to the fair-
ground with no pre-qualifica-
tions and no demands asked of
people receiving food.
Charlotte Hamrick says her
husband, a retired Jacksonville
minister, actually started work-
ing with Gleaners in
Jacksonville three years earlier.
"He would help organize and
distribute food when they were
in the parking lot at Oakhill
Church of the Nazarene at 4151
Old Middleburg Road."
Later, Hamrick moved to
Callahan and found the nutri-
tion needs of the working poor,
elderly and temporarily out of
work due to illness or layoffs
were not being adequately met
Dave Fountain was only too
glad to help fill-the void by
trucking hundreds of loaves of
bread, fresh produce, fruit,

Moore about volunteer opportunities at the fairgrounds with Gleaners Dispatch.


sweets and even occasional
dairy products. to Callahan
every Monday. The Callahan
organizers provide fuel and
maintenance money in return
for the transportation.
"When we get to Callahan
on Monday morning, all we
need to do is open the door on
the trucks and get out of the
way," said Eugene Albright,
operations manager for
Gleaners.
Hamrick said, "I never have
to ask anyone to do anything
because the volunteers see


what needs to be done and they
do it without hesitation."
Once the trucks are
unloaded, the setup is always
done the same way with bread
being first, loaves. and loaves
of white, wheat, whole grain
and other specialty breads, fol-
lowed by sweets such as
donuts, tarts, and other
delights. Then comes fresh
fruit and fresh seasonal veg-
etables from corn-on-the-cob to
fresh kale to turnips and
squash.
Appreciative recipients line


up early to receive food for their
families.
"If you know a hungry fam-
ily, tell them to come see us at
the fairgrounds on Mondays,"
said Hamrick. 'Tell them food
is available and they need to
come get it; don't be embar-
rassed, take care of your fami-
ly now using our resources -
and later, give back by volun-
teering your time or donating
food or money to a good
cause."

work with Girls Inc


Carol DeMarco, chair of the
Girls Inc. of Jacksonville board
of directors and Jacksonville
area mortgage team leader for
Regions bank, was recognized
for her leadership strengths by
Community Connections.
DeMarco, a Fernandina
Beach resident, was honored
during the group's Celebration
of Leadership - A Tribute to
Excellence dinner.
"This recognition simply con-
firms what we already know
about Carol - she leads with
passion and commitment and
steps up to any challenge put in
front of her," said Laura Lasko,
president and CEO of Girls Inc.
of Jacksonville. "Carol repre-
sents Girls Inc. and our mission
so skillfully, and we are all elat-


ed to see her talents appreciat-
ed in the community. Carol is
smart when making decisions
for the organization and bold
because she always accepts
whatever challenge is given."
Born and raised in the
Midwest, DeMarco earned a
degree in psychology from the
University of Tennessee and
moved to Jacksonville in 1997.
She and her husband Joe reside
in Fernandina Beach.
